But I think I found a meatloaf that I like better than my own, which is the meatloaf my mom makes.
I made it this morning before work, although I didn’t make the sauce till the oven was preheating. I read the recipe a couple times before I printed it out a few weeks ago, just to make sure there was nothing objectionable in it–I don’t trust most meatloaves. They’re a little sketchy, and a lot of times they contain things like onions. Still, Ree has never steered me wrong, so I gave this a try. I halved the recipe (although I forgot to halve the milk, and ended up having to toss in a buttload of breadcrumbs to help soak it up), and still got a good-sized loaf.
I think the tangy-sweet ketchup was the best part about it. I should’ve used thinner bacon, and the next time, I might cook it longer, just because I like the burnt bits of ketchup. I made mashed potatoes to go with, but the bambino ate most of them. No matter. For dessert, the 3 of us shared one of these:
There’s still plenty of time to enter my doughnut pan giveaway. I figured I’d answer a couple of the comments here on my blog, since I don’t want to be rude & just ignore my commenters. Plus, I don’t want to clog up the entries, then have to figure out how to exclude myself when I randomly generate the winner. And, it’s something different. So here goes:
DMCGirl–I thought the doughnuts were more along the lines of spongecake. I’m going to attempt different recipes in the near future–I’ll let you know what I come across!
Abby–The couple of doughnut holes I got were the result of my filling the molds with too much batter. I didn’t think to glaze or dunk them in sugar, but I should’ve!
Michelle–No worries. Normally I’m a stickler for people following the rules, but I’m not going to be a giveaway-nazi on anything but my cut-off time on Friday.
Tracy–I don’t think the doughnuts are going to help my waistline either…But they’re so good!
